May every sunrise bring you hope,
May every sunset bring you peace ...
I am a doctor of Clinical Psychology. I also hold a Master of Science degree in General Psychology, and a Master of Arts degree in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Marriage and Family Therapy. I am a trained EMDR therapist as well. I have over 15 years of working in the mental health field and being a psychotherapist and a clinician is my calling.
The decision to seek help for issues impacting your mental health is not an easy one to make. However, when you finally do make that decision, you need a therapist who is able to connect with you as a person. I keep my client base very small so that everyone gets the individual attention that they deserve because no one likes to feel like a “number.”
I believe in the inherent worth and dignity of all people. Through our work together I hope to enhance feelings of worth and dignity. I feel that this is important because when our self-esteem is at its zenith, our ability to cope with the problems of life is enhanced. My approach is one that puts the individual at ease and makes the experience of therapy as normal as possible.
Below are therapeutic modalities utilized
Because every individual is in need of unique approach ....
Therapeutic modalities utilized in Peace and Hope are evidence-based and yield the best possible outcomes. Such therapeutic approaches among others include: EMDR - Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing; Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy ; Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy through Mindfulness, Emotional Regulation, Interpersonal Effectiveness and Distress Tolerance; Psychodynamic Psychotherapy and other evidence-based approaches depending on the need of each individual.
What I Treat
First and foremost, I treat people. You are not a disease or a disorder. You are a person struggling with an issue that is preventing you from living the type of life you want… and it is from there that we begin. People I work with often come to me with issues such as anxiety, depression, obsessive/compulsive disorder, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, various addictions and other problems. This list is by no means exhaustive, and in our initial session, after a comprehensive assessment of the issue, we will discuss whether or not your issue can be treated by me. If not, I will refer you to another professional who is trained to address your needs.
What to Expect
After discussing your concerns and my performing a comprehensive assessment, we will discuss possible causes and contributing factors that may be contributing to your distress. Together, we will work to identify treatment alternatives that fit with your individual goals and lifestyle.
PEACE AND HOPE ALWAYS ✌️ ……
